Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
And I thought I was the only one. I didn't even know what to call it. When I got on the internet and began to finally ask questions I found out that it was called Maladaptive Daydreaming. I am now pushing 40 yrs old and this will be the first time I ever speak about it to anyone. I have missed out on soooo much of my life because of my "other worlds". The education, job opportunities, dating, marriage, learning how to drive a car etc etc. because of daydreaming. I am a Pisces and an introvert. I was abused as a child and to escape I took refuge in my mind. And never left.
